A recent report showed that zolpidem (CAS 82626-48-0) can lead to the arousal of a semi-comatosed patient. Zolpidem is clinically used for the treatment of insomnia. It belongs to the imidazopyridine chemical class and is a non benzodiazepine drug. It illicits its pharmacological action via the GABA receptor system through stimulation of particularly the(More)
Increasing clinical and experimental evidence implicate cerebral hypoperfusion during increased ageing and points to chronic cerebrovascular ischemia as a vital component of the neuropathological progression of dementia. In vivo cerebral perfusion animal models can greatly contribute to the evaluation of drugs and to the screening of drug interactions. This(More)
Researching the biological activities and toxicities of metabolites of drugs is of growing importance and has received increasing attention during the last decade in order to gain a better understanding of the efficacy and safety profile of drugs in clinical use. HPTP (4-(4-chlorophenyl)-1-[4-(4-fluorophenyl)-4-oxobutyl]-1,2,3, 6-tetrahydropyridine, CAS(More)
Haloperidol (HP) and its tetrahydropyridine dehydration product 4-(4-chlorophenyl)-[4-(fluorophenyl)-4-oxobutyl]-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyrid ine (HPTP) are both metabolized in vivo to several pyridinium metabolites with potential neurotoxic properties similar to the neurotoxin 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+), a metabolite of the parkinsonian-inducing agent(More)
